Boy Scout Troop 413

 

 

Boy Scouting, one of the traditional membership divisions of the Boy Scouts of America, is available to boys who have earned the Arrow of Light rank and are at least 10 years old or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old. The program achieves the BSA’s objectives of developing character, citizenship and personal fitness.

Boy Scout Troop 413 is located in Ellensburg Washington. Its charter organization is Calvary Baptist Church.  Troop 413 meets on Monday nights at 6:30 p.m. at Calvary Baptist Church at the Liberty, located on the corner of 5th and Pine.

The troop was started as a ministry to point boys to Christ. Even the troop’s numbers (413) stand for a well known verse, Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Troop 413 remains  a strong boy-led troop dedicated to instilling leadership qualities and building character with an emphasis on Christian values. Duty to God, Duty to others and Duty to self are principles the scouting program has been teaching for 100 years. Troop 413 would like to welcome you to the greatest youth organization in the world…the Boy Scouts of America!

How much does it cost to be a Boy Scout?  The annual registration fee is $24.  The Scoutmaster can explain all the details about the unit’s annual fee and exactly what it includes.

Is Scouting safe?  Yes. Programs are designed to follow a strict set of rules and policies that can be found in the Guide to Safe Scouting. Every registered adult in Scouting is required to complete a Youth Protection training course and a criminal background check. For more information, visit the Youth Protection page.

Who should be contacted if help is needed? A Scout’s patrol leader is the first resource if there are any questions. The senior patrol leader is the next source of information, and then finally the Scoutmaster.
